The Wajaro Foundation
The Wájaro Foundation (Wájaro) is a legal Colombian NGO and is run by a diverse Board of Directors that receives input from individuals and organizations with both local and international experience. Wájaro is an ecumenical and multidisciplinary organization with Christian character.
Though recently founded, Wájaro comes as a result of years of engagement with base communities – indigenous, campesino and urban – from across the Americas.
The word “Wájaro”, which comes from the language spoken by the Amazonian tribal group known as the Eduria, means “let’s go together” and captures in large-part what the Wájaro Foundation seeks to do—to walk alongside groups of people engaged in peace and justice work in difficult regions throughout Colombia.
